     Remy hair is the common term used in hair industry to refer to the hair wig or hair extension that are:  

    - made of 100% human hair.  

    - average to massive chemically processed to variously style the hair.   

    - the most important trait that sets Remy hair from others is that the cuticle is about 90% intact, which helps all hair strands to flow in the same direction and minimize tangles or shedding.  


    • Jet black or off black and dark brown hair colour can be raw hair or virgin hair. Raw hair and virgin hair remain the original hair colour.  
    • Colours such as green, pink or red might be synthetic hair if you aren’t careful while buying. Synthetic hair is difficult to style as it is made of fibre. It can’t hold the curves or colours for long. It also has a much shorter lifespan than human hair.

    • Fair and cool skin: blonde colours such as ash, platinum or silver blonde.  
    • Neutral with little blue undertone: gold blonde, honey or caramel colour 
    • Deep skin tone with yellow undertone: brown colours like auburn, chestnut, chocolate or coffee brown. 
    •  Black colour: This shade can go well with any skin tones but it is especially good for deep skin tone.  
    • Radical colours:  
    • Cool skin undertone: Warm colours such as pink, orange, green or yellow. 
    • Warm undertone: dark blue, blue, black purple, purple.  
    • Finally, it depends the most on your preference. Even if the colour you want doesn’t match your skin tone, try to get consult from professional hair stylist to see if there’s a way to work on it. You like it, you got it!
